About Me

I’m a channel executive and entreprenuer,  husband and dad, outdoor enthusiast and avid reader.  Over the past 20 years, I’ve developed an expertise in B2B channels working in a wide variety of channel sales, marketing and business management roles.  I’ve worked in everything from start-ups to Fortunte 150 companies, have lived and worked abroad, and learned how to motivate others through servant leadership.

This blog is my chance to share what I know about the channel and tell about my own channel journeys.
